You Say You Want a Revolution: Lidar as a Paradigm Shifter in Maya Archaeology

Lidar is changing a number of commercial industries and scientific disciplines, but perhaps none more than Maya archaeology. This talk will explore why the lidar revolution in the Maya area captures the public’s imagination and what its real impact has been on our understanding of the ancient Maya. Finally, this talk will look at how the fusion between social science and technology brings an ancient voice to global discussions in the present relating to climate change and sustainability.
